Church records for Carlow, Cork, Dublin and Kerry now online, free

A second tranche of church register entries, fully transcribed and indexed, has today been added to, a website launched by the Department of Tourism, Culture & Sport late last year.

The records now available are as follows:
  • Carlow – Church of Ireland register entries
  • Cork – Roman Catholic register entries for the diocese of Cork & Ross only
  • Dublin City – Church of Ireland, Presbyterian and Roman Catholic register entries
  • Kerry – Church of Ireland and Roman Catholic records.
Easy to use, the website comes with free access to both the transcriptions and the digital images of the original register pages. For anyone with Irish ancestors from the above counties, Irish genealogy research just got a whole lot easier. Want to know how to trace family history through Irish church records?
